It Never Fails!!!

Every single time we get ready to go on a trip, vacation, or even when we are on one something always happens with one of the vehicles we own. We leave Friday for our anniversary trip away - alone! So, of course, yesterday the minivan stalled on me the entire way to get Alex from school and the entire way home. Adam played with it when he came home last night and thinks it is some sort of fuel injection issue. He wants to try changing the fuel filter before bringing it somewhere so he will try that tonight. I am hoping that is all it is but it never is just something simple. The Minivan is old now - a 1999 Windstar - and has reached over the 100K mile mark now.
Luckily we are taking Adam's car on our trip, but I need the van to work to get the boys back and forth all over town. So today at least, Alex will miss PreK. Tomorrow I can drive Adam to work and use his car for the day since I don't have to work at night, (Adam works 1 hour away from our house so taking him to work and getting him when I have to work at night does not work out- at least one of us or both of us are very late!), but then Thrusday I will need to figure something out if we can't get it fixed by then.

Ugh!!!! I have enough to do this week to prep to leave 4 kids with my single sister for 5 days!!!

I hope everything works out and you get your car fixed! Was it the fuel filter?

We'll be at Disney from Sun-Sat. I'll keep my eyes open for you- that'd be funny if we ran into each other. Although I'm not sure I would recognize you.
